The Peoples Democratic Party on Sunday rejected the votes for the Okene Local Government Area which it termed “allocated.”
In a statement, signed by the PDP National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, the party demanded the Independent National Electoral Commission to cancel the ‘allocated votes’ for Okene Local Government Area.
He said, “The party demands the immediate cancellation of such allocated results, particularly in Okene LGA.
“The people of Kogi State have glaring evidence of alterations of figures to reduce the votes of the PDP and allocate imported figures to the APC. “The party, therefore, cautions INEC not to ever declare such mutilated results as they will not be accepted by the people.
“Our party hopes that this apparent moves to allocate fictitious results to the APC has no bearing with the allegations in the public space that Governor Yahaya Bello and the APC had compromised highly placed INEC officials with huge sums of money to alter the result in favour of the APC.”
